We have created software to protect fans from the thousands of bots trying to scoop up tickets. Fans register ahead of time, and those who are verified and selected receive a code that unlocks the opportunity to purchase tickets. Ticketmaster #VerifiedFan was designed to separate actual, human fans from bots and scalpers. The system aims to thwart bad actors who are in the business of taking away tickets from fans just so they can resell them. Our technology analyzes every registrant to make sure they are real people interested in going to the show.

Please note: Registering does NOT guarantee you will be verified, receive a code or have the ability to purchase tickets.
